Prose Challenge – Write a story of 150 words that focus on a quality that you think the world could do with in abundance. – Sammi Cox
I would like to approach this challenge from the viewpoint of being individuals of this world; we try to be responsible for our living and spending so that we are not wasting the world’s resource.
My husband has retired for a year. I have retired for seven years, even though I would have worked for two more years. Due to the unexpected but timely discovered cancer, I retired a year after the treatment was over.
I’m grateful that we are retired with abundance. We lived frugally throughout the years. Keeping up with the Jones didn’t come across our mind. When our neighbors borrowed money to do remodeling, we only did it when we had money. We didn’t buy many “toys” to show off our lifestyle. We shopped wisely and bought only what we needed. We also made wise decisions on investments.
Our retirement is filled with plenty. We have the freedom to continue our life style, dining out with friends, relaxing at home or going on trips.
We are blessed with prosperity and I’m proud that we have been good stewards of finance.
